Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI

1 Answer

Several warning lights come on after 20 min, then overheats

After about 20 minutes of driving several warning lights come on. ABS, air bag, brake and a couple of others. Then it shows to overheat... All lights dim greatly(dash, headlights, etc) Similar to when an alternator goes out. Once I turn it off, let it sit for several minutes, it starts fine. Another few minutes cycle repeats.

    Thanks... I did remove alternator, it was fine. Battery also tested good. It wound up being the fuse box on top of the battery. The box was fried, at the alternator wire.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

I recently replaced the engine on my Citroen c4 2005 model, now the warning lights stay on, the engine overheat, abs and anti pollution warning lights stay on.


The problem for engine overheating rise due to insufficient refrigerant. Try recharging the refrigerant tank with fresh refrigerant and water. If the refrigerant in the tank is of poor quality then also engine overheat.

The reason for ABS light to come may be due to air in the brake fluid line. Try brake bleeding to remove the air bubbles. Also the faulty brake actuator line may cause the problem. Check for actuators on each wheel.

Pollution warning light comes on if the exhaust system not works properly. Check for faulty Oxygen sensor or faulty catalytic convertor.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

The ABS and air-bag light are permanently on and a warning light


kenchyke, the shop may have disabled the air bag system to work on the car, and possibly forgot to activate it again. While this seems a bit odd to me that they could overlook this but, since it started after the work was done, you need to return it to the shop asap to have them check it out. Although the car runs fine, the abs system and the air bags won't operate, which could result in injury if you are in an accident (air bag will not deploy, abs probably disconnected).
